American Idol “Where Are They Now?” Segments to Feat. Adam Lambert, Jennifer Hudson and More

TV Guide confirms with American Idol producer, Nigel Lythgoe, that Thursday results shows will feature “Where are They Now?” segments with Idol alums.

The feature will catch up with alums such as Adam Lambert (fans report filming during one of his Asian concerts) as well as former contestants who have “fallen from fame.”

“We don’t just pat ourselves on the back and say we produce stars all the time,” Nigel told TV Guide, “So we’re going to be touching on some that have been less successful.”

Nigel mentioned a feature on the “Three Divas” of Season 3, 4th placer, LaToya London, winner Fantasia Barrino, and  7th place finisher and Oscar winner, Jennifer Hudson.  There’s a story there–the first singer of the three eliminated was ultimately the most successful.

“At the end of the day,” said Nigel, “It’s up to the public whether they are stars or not.”
